You might have already bought a new Garmin watch thanks to that fantastic Garmin Fenix 6X deal from a couple of days ago. However, if you're still in the market for a new rugged wearable, we have an even cheap Garmin watch deal for you to check: Amazon's currently selling the Garmin Instinct Solar for a mere £160 – that's half price off!

Now, that's a cheap Garmin watch deal we like to see. The Instinct Solar, as we explained in our Garmin Instinct Solar review, is a rugged GPS outdoor watch that's water-rated to 100 metres and constructed to U.S. military standard 810 for thermal, shock and water resistance. It has a compass, blood oxygen sensor, and many more smart features you probably won't use but is nice to have.

UPDATE: Now that Black Friday/Cyber Monday is over, the watch sells for £200 at Amazon, which isn't a bad price, but not as good as it was a couple of days ago. For the best prices, scroll down to the bottom of this article and check out the widgets, which should always display the lowest Garmin Instinct Solar price currently available.

Should you buy the Garmin Instinct Solar on Black Friday?

The fibre-reinforced polymer case and chemically strengthened, scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla glass lens make the Garmin Instinct Solar tough. Not just any tough but military-standard tough! The Power Glass’s photovoltaic surface covers a large area, but despite the smaller ‘useful’ display area, the information is generally easy to read thanks to the screen-in-screen design. By getting a Garmin Instinct Solar, you get stress tracking, pulse oximeter, multi-GNSS support, ABC sensors, trackback routing, body battery energy monitor and more. Not too shabby!
